A 22-year-old woman was stabbed and left with their throat slit on Tuesday for declining a relationship proposal from her 27-year-old man, she calls uncle, in Telangana’s Hyderabad.

The police said she was repeatedly stabbed for refusing her proposal, according to NDTV.

The accused, Kotha Ganesh, who works as a food delivery boy and happened to be her relative, wanted to marry her, according to the police. She was working as a software engineer in a company in Hyderabad, and she’s living in a hostel in the Gachibowli area.

She is a resident of Puppalaguda in Palnadu district of Andhra Pradesh.

She told police, “I never accepted his proposal but he wouldn't give up. I told my parents about it.”

On Tuesday, the accused went to her hostel and took her to a place near T-Grill Hotel in Puppalaguda. He proposed to her again, but she refused.

It led to an argument, after which the person took out a knife and stabbed her. She tried to stop him and suffered injuries on her hands.

The police received the information around 9 pm. The police rushed to the spot and caught Ganesh attacking the women. She received grievous blows on her neck, face, and hands. Her throat was slit.
